Anyways, we usually do not buy ourselves many thing, but when we do spend money we try to get what we really like...and since we both have great taste, we are not buying much right now. We have, however, been very blessed with generous friends. We are fully prepared to just hang onto our furniture collections from college (and yes, some of those college pieces may have been found in the near vicinty of a dumpster), but a bedroom set was posing a bit of a problem for us. It is kind of difficult to feel grown up when instead of a dresser you root through a mountain of clothes folded neatly in a corner on the floor. Then, a friend happened to mention that she had a bedroom set from her mother that it was time to give away, and ta-da! we inherited an heirloom. It was purchased on November 22, 1963, which I find interesting give my birth date and current locale. It is French Provincial and in gorgeous shape, the kind of vintage pieces we could never afford from an antique mall. And I really dig that we inherited it through friends; it makes me look forward to the time Sean and I will be able to give hand-me-downs to new couples.
